Long Term Chart Options

Another way to create a long-term chart is to take only the "fat" portion of each front month contract and paste them together. With this method, you are cutting off both the beginning of the chart, where there is typically less volume and open interest, and the end of the chart, where it is "cooling down" from traders who are transferring their orders to the next month's contract.

Contracts tend to have more activity during the middle of the contract and less toward the end. Track 'n Trade 5.0 can cut out the middle of each contract and paste the contracts together as a long term chart.

Using options available in Track 'n Trade 5.0, traders are able to specify the number of days at the end of a contract that they would like excluded from a long term chart.
